The Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship Program at The University of Chicago is led by Fellowship Director, Dr. Sandy Tun, Assistant Professor of Medicine. All clinical training programs meet the requirements of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
The University of Chicago Medicine is engaged in building a robust palliative medicine program within the Section of Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine, including the addition of a Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship in 2009. Strengths of the program include faculty dedicated to the teaching of medical students, residents, and fellows in the practice of hospice and palliative medicine, tradition of scholarship in the field, institutional commitment to the growth of palliative care, and a mandate by the medical center to care for and improve the health of the surrounding population.
Minimum requirements for admission to our program include:
- M.D. or equivalent degree
- Applicants must have completed an ACGME or AOA-accredited residency program in Anesthesiology, Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Neurology, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pediatrics, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Psychiatry, Radiation Oncology, or Surgery.
